Today's entry on my list of the Top 10 films of the decade is coming in at #3 : FIRST REFORMED.
Every movie is a piece of art. By nature of the medium, artists come together to craft a film that has purpose. Whether that purpose is to make money, illicit an emotional response, make a statement of some kind, or a combination of these three is up to the filmmakers. Like the famous works in art galleries and museums, how an individual will respond to the piece is completely unpredictable and entirely personal. FIRST REFORMED spoke to me on a level I've rarely experienced from any work of art. It remains one of the most profound experiences I've ever had watching a film.
A young, newly expectant, couple goes to their Church's Reverend Toller (Ethan Hawke, a career defining performance) in a time of great conflict. Due to the climate crisis our Earth is currently facing, the father-to-be isn't sure that bringing a child into a dying world is morally acceptable. Witnessing the general lack of action and political bickering has brought the man to a state of great despair. These sentiments are not initially shared by Reverend Toller, but the seed is planted and grows into a crisis of faith over the course of the film.
Right out of the gate, this narrative is timely and gripping. This is a nearly identical struggle to the ones myself and countless others have had. It's a serious exploration of the nature of faith and the crisis of anxiety younger generations are currently experiencing. In doing so, it also becomes a conversation, and scathing call to action, on the Biblical duties and responsibilities of the Christian Church to protect God's creation. But it's all told in such a brilliant way that viewers of any background will find real substance to latch onto. °
What could have been a generic "Oscar-bait" movie in lesser hands, instead transcends those expectations into something that feels revelatory. The writing and directing is flawless, the cinematography and music is hypnotic, and the lead performances by Hawke and Amanda Seyfried should be studied by aspiring actors. (CONTD. in comments)
Great result to sell 5 Makura to our vendors of 22 Acornia...a perfect example of the domino effect.

WOW Top 50 for 2020
04. Set sail on a state-of-the-art ship
A new ship is set to revolutionise the ocean-going experience in 2020
Celebrity Apex (launching in April) is the second ship to launch in Celebrity Cruises’ Edge series fleet with a raft of innovative design and visionary spaces.
While the exterior is certainly eye-catching, the interiors are just as stylish and modern with outdoor plunge pools for the two-storey Edge Villas. If that wasn’t fantastical enough, the Magic Carpet is the world’s first cantilevered platform that can move decks and up to a height of 13 storeys for a new perspective on cruising.
Congratulations to the new owners, we know you will love the location and making many great memories here 🙌🏼 Great to get this sold for our Hamilton based vendors - the second property we have SOLD for them this year.

Day 16 😍 of my challenge!
Yeah, I'm halfway the-ere (I'm singing 🎶 of course, thank you #bonjovi )
I'm posting the actual write up from the Good Housekeeping magazine; quite frankly a new $200 blanket is not on my Christmas #list but #voile 😊 look at my solution!
The recommended size for a #blanket is at about 10% of your body weight....hmmm.... Since I weight about 165 pounds (and I'm working on shedding another 25 to reach my #healthiest range) it looks like this giant #kitty is a perfect match! And he loves to #cuddle
Ao mesmo tempo que imprime um senso de humor que transita entre o sarcástico, tragicômico, nonsense e absurdo, o texto da série é eficiente ao retratar problemas psicológicos como a depressão e o vício e oferecer uma abordagem que transita entre o dramático e filosófico ao retratar um personagem moldado pelos problemas da infância e pela desesperança de um dia ser capaz de se redmir dos problemas de seu passado. .
•The Enf of The F***ing World
A série trás elementos dos clássicos de "road movie" com uma mistura de Wes Anderson e seu humor "absurdo".
Tem um roteiro pontual e ácido, que com sua edição, trás ritmo e poder às piadas, mas também à personalidade de seus personagens que são muito bem interpretados.
The End of The F***ing World pode não agradar à todos por seu humor ácido (que pode soar como agressivo), mas é inegável ver o desempenho de seus autores e seu elenco envolvente.
Merece sua atenção. .
Por: @03filmes .
"Barry" fala do ofício de ator e a difícil busca por reconhecimento. Também fala da desumanização causada pela guerra. E relaciona as duas coisas ao protagonista, um ex-soldado e assassino de aluguel que se reencontra no teatro, mas precisa lidar com as consequências de sua "profissão". A série trata de temas delicados com muito bom humor. .
•Orange is The New Black
Com um humor negro talhando em temas polêmicos (se você for homofóbico, assista e reflita) a série se destaca fazendo uma transição pefeita entre drama e comédia. Mesmo sua primeira temporada sendo ótima infelizmente ofendera a muitos, mas indiscutivelmente indispensável. .
•One Day At a Time
A série aborda assuntos importantíssimos, como imigração, depressão, ansiedade, vícios em álcool e drogas, entre outros, com uma grande delicadeza e humor e ainda sobra espaço pra dar várias cutucadas na sociedade e no governo americano e cubano.
